I love Christmas movies, and this is the season of when all the good holiday movies come out. The Key To Christmas is a good example. The actors are great and the storyline is really inspirational. If you like Christmas you will definitely like this movie. This really shows the true magic of Christmas and how people can change.

The storyline is about an elf named Winey (Samriddhi Singh) who is always getting into trouble with Santa and she does not like Christmas. Winey decides to revisit the past in a time machine and ruin Christmas forever. She messes with time and, guess what? Santa stops growing and stays a teenager! While he is a teenager he is always giving up so he cannot help the other elves. As time goes by, Santa gets younger instead of older and Winey and her elf friend ruin Christmas, or they try to.

This film has great acting. The actors have amazing energy and are fun to watch. The costumes are superb. The sets are terrific. For example, the Christmas factory set is so pretty with toys everywhere and Christmas decorations on everything. There is a cool time machine in Santa's office and tons of other great things. This film is so enjoyable movie to watch from start to finish.

The message in this film is to think before you act, because you can get hurt or get other people hurt. You could even get in trouble.

I rate The Key To Christmas 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18. You can find it online and on DVD October 17, 2020.

When a disgruntled elf sees her chance to take over the North Pole, she uses a magical machine to turn time backwards on Jolly Old Santa Claus and he begins getting younger-- and fast! With Mrs. Claus captured and in candy cane jail, it's up to a loyal elf, a little girl with a magical key, and the now-teenage Santa to turn forward the hands of time and save the future of Christmas.
